Baked Smoked Chili Fries and Grilled Turkey Burgers

December 24

For a fast healthy dinner that’s better than fast food, try this take on delicious chili fries and burgers. Chili fries are great as a snack, or for entertaining. Serve ‘em up with delicious and nutritious turkey burgers that you grill at home. Your kids and their friends are sure to love them.

Chili Fries
4 medium baking potatoes, cut lengthwise into eights
1 Tbsp olive oil
Chili powder
Pinch salt and pepper

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Lightly coat potatoes with olive oil
3. Sprinkle with chili powder, salt and pepper
4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes

Turkey Burgers
I buy the Jennie O brand of turkey patties. They are so easy. Just sprinkle with garlic on each side and grill the burgers over medium heat. Cook about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

No buns, just eat with lettuce, tomato and onion.

Health Benefits
The turkey burgers are an excellent source of protein, with little saturated fat. Low sodium, low cholesterol, no sugar. French fries don’t have to be bad, especially when they are baked in the oven. Potatoes are high in potassium and vitamin C. A good source of plant protein, without any fat.
